War Pigeon

War Pigeon lets you experience the life of a World War 1 messenger pigeon on the front lines. Escape to the clouds to home in on your message pickup and delivery point using controller rumble, avoiding hazardous flak cannons that invert controls. Swoop down into the battlefield to reach your target, navigating through tight alleyways and avoiding gunfire from enemy troops!
